Playing Rogue Day 2

Posted by cncfreak, 29 June 2012 · 322 views

I burned through quite a few characters this time. First up was save2600:
Things were going fairly well until i hit level 4. I entered a room with a slime and started attacking it.
But i kept missing and it kept splitting. Needless to say i was overwhelmed with slimes and succumbed
to them.

Next up was ianoid:
I made it all the way to level 8 but through out my adventure ran into quite a few rattlesnakes. Just so
you know rattlesnakes poison you which lowers your strength by one. I had fought so many my
strength had lowered to 2 out of 16. I barely could kill anything and i had no magical items to remove
the effect so a lowly slime put an end to my adventure.

Next up was AtariBrian:
Things were going well for me until level 8. I stumbled into a teleportation trap which teleported me
to another portion of the map and confused me for a bit. There also was a mad centaur in the room
that decided it didn't like me so he finished me off in quick fashion.

Next up was nitrosport:
I was doing well until level 7 where for some reason i couldn't hit anything including the zombie
that ate my brains.

And last up was FibroFreak78:
I've saved the best for last. I got pretty far with this character even though they had a timely death
as well. Things didn't start off so well though. I found a set of banded mail amor. I knew it was much
better than what i was wearing but didn't have a scroll of identify on me. I took a chance and put it on
and what do you know it was cursed (-4 banded mail). The problem with cursed items like many
games, once you put it on it can't be removed without some type of magical item. While wandering
around i ended up in this room.

Through sheer luck i survived this encounter and here is where my luck turned to the good. From all
the treasure i picked up i was able to remove the curse on the armor and replace it with something
better and also collected multiple enchant weapon scrolls. When it was all said and done i had a
+5/+3 mace. I now was able to kill things in one shot that used to take 3-4 shots. Unfortunately my
luck ran out on level 13 when i fell into a pit and ended up at the feet of a nasty troll who killed me.
This is as far as i've made it so far. I finally got out of level 7-8 but now i must start anew.

And now the high score table:

I'm not sure i will be posting any more updates until next week. Me and the wife are going out of town for the weekend down to Miami for a Sci-fi convention. But you never know.




Have fun at the Bi-Mon-Sci-Fi-Con.

Nice blog. I love Rogue.

Have you tried Donnie Russell's port? http://www.freewebs.com/drussell/

It's very good. It just adds a few subtle extras to the game. If you like Rogue, try MAG too,

Are you doing this for the Rogue Tournament? http://roguetemple.c...hp?topic=2499.0

Very cool! I like your documentation of the games and kills. :)

Funny what a game idea will do. That thread seems to have spurred a few people's interest in Rogue, including me. I played it many years ago, and again started playing this last week after reading the thread. Made it all the way up to level 17. But I'll admit I was save-cheating. :P

I started playing NetHack in the last 3 days. It's a lot of fun, and REALLY FRUSTRATING! This time I'm not save-cheating. I've managed about level 5 so far.

By the way, on FibroFreak78's game, the room with all the monsters and items is called a vault. They're pretty rare. I've never personally found one.
